When the crops of our country are
wtlrnsted to be worth $700,000,000
moro thla year than last, It proves one
of two things, viz: Either that last
year's crop was not nearly an average,
or that thla yepr'a Is beyond all com
parison the greatest on record. Last
year's crops, though not equal to thoao
of 1891, were far from being failures,
hence we assume that 1891 takes the
cake In all that relates to the general
products of our farms and orchards.

Tho Ooronor'o Jury.
Editor Hikald : During my exper
ienco in tho coal fields of Pennsylvania
for forty years I have asked mysolf tho
question : Of what benefit is a coroner's
jury, oither to the living, or tho dead? 1
desire to call your attention especially to
tho mining class, taking into consideration
the thousands of men and boys who are
engaged in tho perilous vocation and, ac
cording to the statistics, hundreds of poor
mortals aro burled into eternity annually,
anu me numberless accidents that occur
every day. But, alas I no remedy is sug
geslod by our mine inspectors to decrease
the awful record of disasters which wo
are called upon to witness, and for which
somo ono is respnnsraio, eitnor the em
ployer or tho employe. A largo porcentsge
of casualties are reportod by tho mino in1
speclors' reports and the coroners' juries as
tho result of rrosa neelleenco. vet no
remedy is offerod by tho proper parties, if
there be any. No attention is paid to the
samo Vy either parly. If the Jury returns
a verdict, "Wo find the said A. B. came to
his death by neglecting to oboy orders" no
attention is paid to tho verdict. The next
day a similar accident occurs and the same
verdict is rendered. I can recall scores of
instances where casualties have occurred
throush grojs neglect, yet a coroner's jury
railed to nx toe blame on tho proper par
ties. It in a j ho truo that some jurors havo
done their duty1 in fixing the blamo and
have had the manhood to consuro the
prcpor parties. Lot me ask your many
readers : Of what benefit has it been to the
unfortunates who have to risk their lives
the next day in diwine "dusl.y diamond.?1
I propose to point out a few moro evils per
laming to mis question, ana oiler eomo
suggestions as a remedy, in your next.
